Our Matcha is a fine powder grounded from green tea leaves. Fresh young buds and leaves from the first spring harvest are dried and steamed, then made into powder form. During the grinding process, all the veins of the tea leaves and stems must be removed. Hence, it takes several pounds of tea to produce one pound of matcha.
Matcha supplies 100% of the health benefits of green tea. It is rich in vitamins and minerals, as well as the antioxidant – catechins. Some people drink matcha latte to boost metabolism and energy.
- Matcha is traditionally consumed as a drink, but has increasingly become a popular ingredient in cooking.
- You can add it to shakes, soups, rice porridge, pancakes, or use in baking breads and cookies. It adds a lovely green colour and also gives you a nutrition boost!
Organic green tea.
To prepare matcha tea traditionally, place 1 teaspoon of the powder in a deep bowl. Pour in 8 ounces of hot water just before it boils. Stir vigorously with a bamboo whisk in a “w” or left to right pattern, not a circle, until frothy. Sip right from the bowl and enjoy.
